Fall Plant Sale
CNPS Santa Cruz County 2023 Fall Plant Sale!
Saturday October 14th, 2023
10-2 at the UCSC Arboretum
Get there early for best selection!
Our Fall Plant Sale on Saturday October 14 will be the largest sale to date! More plants and species, including more plants grown from seed collected within Santa Cruz County! This is an exciting development for the Propagation Team, one we hope to pursue further as we work to acquire additional locally sourced propagules (seeds!)
Local plants are not only beautiful, they support nature’s local ecology. Especially important to the web of life are the insects that they support. Insects are not just great pollinators and food for other animals, but provide high-fat, high-protein food required by baby birds – in the form of caterpillars and other larvae.
The Fall Sale will feature over 140 species of native plants, many of which are new offerings for our Chapter. The Sale will offer many seed grown Dudleya (always highly sought after!) as well as a selection of both warm and cool season grasses which bring beauty and texture into any garden space. As always, we will have lots of plants in our most popular genera: Epilobium, Erigeron, Diplacus, Artemisia, Achillea, Grindelia, and my personal Fall favorite Eriogonum– eight species busting out in bloom!
Please check the Chapter’s website and Facebook group page closer to the Sale date for additional information including the Sale availability list which will be posted a week prior to the Sale date.
Did we mention getting there early is key to the best plant selection?
